Museo de Las Tumbes Reales de Sipán - Museum Lambayeque - Peru

The Museo de Las Tumbes Reales de Sipán is a stunning, informative and atmospheric exhibition on the discovery and subsequent excavation of the the tomb of the Lord of Sipán. Along with a replica of the tomb itself, the museum displays the remarkable collection of artifacts found buried with the Lord. The highlights of the exhibition are undoubtedly the painstakingly restored gold and silver jewelry. Toward the end of the exhibition, there are interesting displays on the restoration work itself as well as on efforts made to recover Moche artifacts previously lost to international smuggling.
